JustAlan: It seems to me to be a bad idea to have a cache directly opposite a major hospital in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic, so I'm archiving it. It may (or may not) be replaced with a new cache when this is all over. Container has been removed.


I can see the helipad from up here

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

A small camoflaged cache.

  • On top of the large roundabout opposite the Royal Derby Hospital is a large grassy area with views of the helipad on top of the hospital. I am reliably informed that this is a double helipad capable of receiving an MOD Chinook helicopter, but I have yet to see one up there.
  • PLEASE, PLEASE only access the roundabout via the two nearby light controlled pedestrian crossings, as the traffic travels fast, and there are multiple lanes to cross. There is also a cut grass path midway between the two crossings to get to the higher level of the roundabout.
  • There is limited street parking behind the nearby supermarket, but it is chargeable from 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. Far better to use the bus.
